Not on the travelers' beaten track, but only 10 minutes off I-40, we were in Cookeville just overnight (traveling from NC to Memphis) & stumbled onto this wonderful place. Serious craft beers (bartender warned us on entry that they had no light beers - won us over from the start). World class burger (medium rare was just that), fries the French would be proud to call frites, warm & able service, locals at the bar. No TVs! Also a fine selection of single malt Scotch whiskies. Good enough that I'm going to be back, just for it. Sort of a Cheers South with better than pub food.
